wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
Cake is a favorite dessert for many people, often for special occasions, like birthdays, or just as a tasty treat. The only problem is that cake can be a very fattening dessert, unless you have a healthy recipe like this one, for a vegan chocolate cake.
- 1 1/2 cups flour (white- or half white and half whole wheat)
- 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 cup white sugar, or a sugar substitute, that has been finely ground in a food processor
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 5 tablespoons apple puree
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup warm water
- Grease the cake pan lightly. Since there is no oil in this recipe, it will stick if you skip this step.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, stir all of the dry ingredients together (the first 6 on the list).
- In a separate bowl, mix all or the wet ingredients.
- Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, in two equal amounts, while mixing well after each addition, but be careful not to over mix. Just make sure there are no big lumps in the batter.
- Pour the batter into your prepared cake pan.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes. Since ovens vary, the cake is done when it has risen to double its size, and springs back up if you press on it. Stick a toothpick in the cake to check if it is fully baked. If the toothpick is removed dry, it is ready to eat.
- Remove the cake from the pan after it has cooled for 5 minutes. This will be easy if you oiled the pan.
- Enjoy a healthy slice of delicious vegan chocolate cake!
- You can enjoy the cake as it is, but if you'd like a healthy frosting, try spreading Greek yogurt and raspberries on top for added taste.
- Be careful not to burn yourself when using the oven.
